Massimiliano Allegri predicts goals ahead of Real Madrid tie


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says it is very unlikely for tomorrow's game against Real Madrid to end goalless.

The Bianconeri host the reigning champions in the Champions League after being crowned Italian champions for the 31st time on Saturday.

And the Italian admits Los Merengues start the tie as favourites.

"They are the reigning champions so clearly they start as favourites," Allegri said.

"But it's a semifinal and we have to be fully aware of what we have achieved so far [in the competition] knowing that in front us we have a great team with great champions.

"When you play this type of games, I don't want to say you have to play the perfect game because there is nothing like perfect games, but we have to play a very good game, both offensively and defensively.

"I don't believe Juventus-Real Madrid and Real Madrid-Juventus will end goalless.

"[Carlo Ancelotti?] He's not just good he's also very clever, just look at what he achieved in Europe. I respect him as a coach and as a person. He's quality, he won in Italy, England, France and Spain."
